Be Still, My ’90s Fangirl Heart: Backstreet Boys Announce North American Tour With Avril Lavigne

Any day that the Backstreet Boys announce a new tour is a great day, but when they announce a North American tour to support one of their best albums ever, with Avril fucking Lavigne as a special guest, well, today just became the best day of my life. As awesome as the Backstreet Boys/New Kids On The Block tour was, my inner child (who is actually my inner teen, forever trapped in 1998, listening to “Complicated” on repeat, wishing she could fit into L.E.I. flare jeans) is way more stoked about this one. Tickets go on sale March 21st, and the tour kicks off in Canada on May 3rd, with the first American stop in Seattle on May 22nd. So far I’m not seeing any dates in Nashville, which is severely disappointing, but I guess that means a road trip to Chicago is in order. Check out the list of US tour dates after the jump!
